Lowracer -
i hear your pain - just the other day realized i forgot to empty to trash can under the sink from the last trip down south a month ago. Just thankful it's been well below freezing for the most part so the stink factor wasn't too bad. Cant imagine if I was somewhere sunny and warm....

Put a screen behind the Espar heater to keep "stuff" from blocking or getting into the intake. I have an '07 RB50 floor plan so this might not concern others, but the way mine was set up, gear can very easily get into the return air intake on the heater. Here is a photo taken from the rear door looking into the storage area and you can see the heater intake.


There is a built in screen, but it won't stop bags, fabric and the like from getting sucked up against the intake.
This is a shot from the top thru the cabinet.


I just got a piece of 1/2" x 1/2" hardware cloth,


cut it to size and put a wood trim around it. I know, I know, it doesn't match but it's what I had. Can't see it unless you stick you head in there anyway....


Now I can stuff anything I want into this area and not worry about blocking the inlet. I did this mod because I had the problem. Makes a funny noise and the heater gets REAL hot.

Got my ScanGuage back and programmed in the Trans Temp, Tank Ave Fuel Mileage, Horsepower and Gallons remaining in Tank as guages to be displayed.

So far the trans temp peaked at 175 in commuter traffic and stop-n-go.

$25 well spent.

Installed some Duralast Gold 65DLG starter batteries. Took the voltage at dash to see if there is a drain tomorrow.

I ordered a Dash Hawk engine monitor.

Jage did you get your garage wired up and did those twin 4-Ds come back up or is that the next job you have to do to your SMB?

Nope just the starters. I want to see if the house batts bring them down, then I'm going to disconnect everything from the isolater and go from there... the garage is a whole nuther story that I don't want to read.

Since my SMB and I are seperated by 2k miles right now, I myself didn't actually do any work on it. However, body shop is touching it up in a few places and I reviewed photos to determine where to have it Rhino Coated today (lower rear quarters, lower rear doors and front edge of hood).

That post needs to be replicated either in the mods forum as its own item, or in the sticky at the top of the mods for "little things." Hate to see that get lost in this thread. And don't forget to note the source and model of the stair component!

Maybe Jeffrey can add to this also. I will add the maker of the step and website I got It from if people are interested.
